Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake expanded its services through the addition of a new physical therapy center. Located in Bedford at 2419 Highway 121, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake Physical Therapy Center, managed by Greater Therapy Centers, provides outpatient physical and occupational/hand therapy for individuals suffering from pain or injury.
“Services provided at the new physical therapy center allow Texas Health Southlake to better accommodate the needs of the community. Since any physician can refer patients to the center, the facility provides a final step on the road to recovery for many individuals who need additional assistance outside of our hospital doors,” said Traci Bernard, R.N., president of Texas Health Southlake, via press release.
The 6,500-square-foot location houses specific equipment for outpatient physical therapy due to sports injuries, work injuries, sprains and strains, as well as all orthopedic injuries of the back and neck, knees, shoulders, elbows, hand and wrist, foot and ankle, and hip. Six onsite physical therapists provide personalized care and treatment, whether patients suffer from minor ailments or significant injuries.
Leading the team of physical therapists, Michael Connors, DPT, serves as the center supervisor. Connors holds a Master of Physical Therapy from Rutgers University and a post-professional Doctor of Physical Therapy from Temple University. He is currently completing a doctorate degree in physical therapy with an emphasis in applied biomechanics from Texas Woman’s University. Additionally, Connors is a board certified specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy from the American Board of PT Specialties and is President of the Texas Physical Therapy Association.
With experiences working with patients of all ages and physical abilities, the therapists at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake Physical Therapy Center apply professional techniques and utilize state-of-the-art tools to ensure that patients recover function and receive relief from pain as quickly and efficiently as possible.
“The addition of this service line has been a dream at Texas Health Southlake for some time. Fortunately, now it is a reality. Our patients have always been our top priority. Now we are able to extend our patient care even further,” said Bernard.
